VOV Kajal/Kohl Swatches & Review

I truly believe that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder…. that’s why I like to keep my eyes pretty and beautiful :) 

Kajal or Kohl is that product which most of us can’t do without. It’s the basic makeup product which all of us own..soooooooo basic that it’s actually thought of more as a necessity rather than as a makeup product..(atleast I think so) 

I have been wearing kajal for the past 7-8 years now & for me it’s as important as water. Without it I feel NAKED..!!! (you understand now..!!). People who wear kajal know that a day without it makes them look sooo SICK and WEAK!!  Seriously guys..!!! (It’s a great way of making excuse to your teachers/boss in case you want a day off ;) )

Without any more blabbering let us move onto the product:

Price: Rs. 130 (big) and Rs. 85 (small)

My View: I have been using VOV kajal for more than a year now and I must say that it’s really good. I have used lots of kajals (lakme, Revlon, maybelline, lotus etc) but I found this to be the best among all of them.

  • Staying power: It stays for good 7-8 hrs on me with just a little bit smudging. (mind you I have watery eyes)
  • Color & texture: It’s highly pigmented and has a very smooth texture but doesn’t melt.
  • Although it isn’t water proof but it doesn’t get washed off by water easily.
  • It comes in simple pencil form (big size) as well as in form of retractable pencil (small size).

  • The only con I can think of is that it is not available in retractable form if you want to buy a bigger one.
